In brief: Prevention

Insure that you use fresh sharp blades vice dull blades.
If the hair is more than several mm long – then trim it before shaving it. Wash the area before shaving – warm water can help to soften the hairs. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in the direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard.

If the bumps are persistent then they could be ingrown hairs (could see derm for that).
